Honored to have participated in the private meeting at the residence of the Ambassador of Belgium on the issue of international crime and terrorism with the Minister of Interior and Vice Premier of Belgium Jan Jambon and the Interior Minister Stefano Candiani, in place of Minister Salvini. The need to share information, best practices and strategic collaboration between the various actors involved in preventing and combating the forms of crime using the most sophisticated technologies and the most advanced financial instruments to spread terror has emerged.

VDL Speech VSF

Prosperous growth must combine policies pushing up the competitiveness of the economic management, health, education, but, in parallel, reducing inequalities and corruption. There might be a dilemma between favouring first green growth or other factors of a prosperous growth. This requires a dedicated forum for rethinking and reshaping the economic models, business practices, and R&D.
